The First Images From Jesse Cook's MONSTER BRAWL

Written By: Ken Hulsey

Over the past few months I have written a couple of articles about the Canadian horror/comedy "Monster Brawl" under the direction of Jesse Cook.

Now the film is done shooting and Cook has released the first images from it via Fangoria.

New details about "Monster Brawl" have also surfaced. It seems that this monster 'fight club' that takes place in an abandoned and cursed graveyard is actually a national televised event and will be presented in the format of a pay-per-view WWE telecast that will include announcers, Buzz Chambers and Sasquatch Sid Tucker, behind-the-scenes footage and bios on the monsters.

The contestants reportedly will include Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy and Zombies all divided into two teams The Undead and The Creatures.

This is how Cook explained it to Fangoria, “Fans will want to see monsters fighting, as the title implies, but it was important to inject a dark and powerful storyline behind each creature. After all, they’re the main characters, and we want to know where they came from, how they got involved in this tournament and, for some, how they came back to life. The fight sequences will speak for themselves—especially the grisly final showdown—but at the end of the day, the movie is about the story behind each fighter, much like in real wrestling. Betrayals, heels, babyfaces, pre-fight trash-talking—otherwise, it would be pure carnage. You can have all the moves you want, but without the story you have nothing. It’s essentially good vs. evil. I wanted to make a film that I would watch over and over again with friends when I was 16. Everyone can cheer for their favorite monster and experience the highs and lows that come with defeat and victory.”

Sounds like the film maker really is going to take a good stab at professional (?) wrestling and using monsters to parody the sports (?) top talent is a stroke of genius.

Alongside the for mentioned Chambers and Tucker the cast of "Monster Brawl" includes Dave Foley, MMA referee Herb Dean, wrestlers Jimmy Hart and Kevin Nash, Robert Maillet and Lance Henriksen and Art Hindle.

While the editing of "Monster Brawl" has already begun, Cook, Matt Wiele, and director John Geddes have already begun working on their next film, "Exit Humanity" which will feature the undead during the Civil War. That film is scheduled to begin filming in October near Toronto.
